Class Schedule Update

Dear Parents and Students,

While Pittsburgh Prep transitions to a dynamic new website, we have updated our schedule with one new class and more on the way! A class has opened in preparation for the May 2 administration of the SAT, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at our headquarters in the East End. We are also finalizing a possible North Hills class for the May SAT, as well as finishing our summer schedule!

If you have any questions about our current or upcoming classes, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

2015 North Hills SAT Course Just Added!

It’s happened again! Because of overwhelming demand, we’ve had to add another SAT course to our 2014-2015 schedule. Thankfully there are still a few seats available. The class details are available here.

Fall PSAT Class is now enrolling!

For younger students who have concerns about their standardized exams, we offer a comprehensive program designed specifically for the PSAT exam. Built to complement our proven SAT curriculum, the PSAT program introduces students to the critical reasoning skills and fundamental concepts needed for comfort and success on the PSAT/NMSQT test.  We cover:

  • Fundamental Math review
  • Critical Reading methods
  • Essential Writing in grammar and vocabulary
  • Powerful essay writing

Also included in the course are three practice exams with thorough analytics for each exam and three test review sessions.  Our PSAT classes act as academic primers for the eventual SAT and other standardized exams your student will tackle in their secondary schooling.  If you are interested, our PSAT course is open for enrollment on the Available Classes page.

As always, we are happy to discuss your student’s future success!  Please feel free to contact us by email or phone.

Fall 2014 SAT Courses (North Hills and Shadyside) are Starting!

With our Summer Intensive courses winding down, Pittsburgh Prep has opened enrollment for fall classes!  Our PA-14 course, starting September 9th and completing before the November 8th SAT, is now open in our Available Classes. We have also posted a North Hills class tailored for the December SAT.

Our 45 students have managed to increase their SAT scores by an average of 150 points, and they are only at the halfway point!  We at Pittsburgh Prep cannot wait to see how much further our students can reach, and would be elated to help your student reach the same potential this fall.  If we can assist you with group classes or private tutoring, please do not hesitate to reach out to us!

Second North Hills Class is Available!

We at Pittsburgh Prep could not believe the overwhelming response to our first class in the North Hills!  After so many parents called and emailed about our SC-14 SAT Intensive Class, we couldn’t turn away or wait-list any more parents.  By popular demand, we will run a second SAT Intensive course on Perry Highway, hosted by our partner Coffee Buddha!  Registration is open on the Available Classes page.  If you have any questions before signing up, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Two New Spring Classes Added!

A few parents have been calling in about Spring classes, and we would be happy to help! There are two new classes on the Available Classes calendar for the May and June 2014 SAT exams. Each class is 27-30 hours of instruction in the fundamentals of the material most tested by the College Board on the SAT. Unlike other test prep centers, we do not focus on simple test tips; our curriculum is designed to help students powerfully comprehend concepts that are fundamental to a well-rounded college education.

If you had an interest in speaking to one of our instructors or enrolling a student in the March-May or April-June course, feel free to contact us with your questions or inquiries. Thanks!

Pittsburgh Prep’s Summer 2014 Schedule is Complete!

Pittsburgh Prep: SAT, ACT, and Private Tutoring

Pittsburgh Prep’s complete Summer 2014 schedule is now live. We are thrilled to have another season of intensive courses after our success in 2013.

Last summer, forty-eight students achieved their goal scores on their SAT exams with an astounding average increase of 282 points*. What’s more, we measure our success in our program not only by these data sets, but also by the fact that all of our students improve their sense of confidence and knowledge applicable to all standardized test taking. As the only prep center in Pittsburgh who transparently shares actual score improvements, we are proud of what our students have accomplished.

Our summer intensive courses cover fundamental concepts, critical reasoning, and test-taking strategies in a small class setting, including full-length simulated SAT practice exams, and mandatory test review sessions with our highly qualified instructors, who have all scored in the 99th percentile on an actual SAT examination.

We would love to share this kind of success with you this summer, and lead your student to his or her highest testing potential.  You can enroll in our Summer Intensive courses online, or contact us by phone or email.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to hearing from you!
